night parking lot attendants would help stop the violence. >> i think the parking attendants don't do anything about it. >> part of this new proposal is make sure these lots have parking attendants to help stop those problems. you don't think it's going to work? >> if they enforce it, maybe. >> and hiring attendants to work all night could be costly. >> many of the lots are making a lot of money. they are profiting from the very nightclub that is close by. and yet, they are not helping to patrol our neighborhoods and to keep those neighborhoods safe. >> i am standing in front of a parking lot that does work. you see right behind me, that is the nightclub. next to me is this lot. it has an attendant that stays here all night and a fence that could close off the lot. this new proposal is aimed at those open lots that you see no attendance. those are the ones that are

she asked, but they said no. >> disappointed? >> under statement. somebody from the sharks comes forward and says, you know, it gets better, you know, hang in there. that may save someone's life, who is thinking about going and stepping on the train tracks. >> the movement now has 20,000 youtube clips from ordinary people all the way to president obama. all in an effort to stop bullying and prevent suicide among gay teenagers. it's also caught on with major league baseball. the cubs, the seattle mariners, the phillies, the tampa bay rays, the boston red sox and the baltimore orioles have shot videos. as for the sharks, they issued a written statement saying while sharks force an entertainment praises efforts of the it gets better campaign, we receive hundreds of requests each season to get involved in a vast array of admirable causes.
